The 1975 have today released ‘Now Is The Hour’, an intimate new track taken from Jack Antonoff’s soundtrack to ‘The New Look’ - a tv series set to debut on AppleTV+ on 14th February.

Alongside Matty Healy and co., the Bleachers frontman has collaborated with the likes of Florence + The Machine, Lana Del Rey, beabadoobee, Nick Cave and more to produce a series of covers of popular early to mid-twentieth century songs. The 1975’s pick, ‘Now Is The Hour’, originated in New Zealand as a Maori farewell song before being covered by Gracie Fields and Bing Crosby in the 1940s, which made it a popular choice to play in send off to soldiers departing to fight in the Second World War.

Set around World War II itself, The New Look will follow fashion designers Christian Dior and Coco Chanel as they live in war-torn Paris and launch their fashion houses. The release of its soundtrack will just precede the arrival of Bleachers’ self-titled fourth studio album (due on 8th March), while ‘Now Is The Hour’ marks The 1975’s first new release since 2022’s ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’.
